Join Me in a Land of Wonder

Inspired partially by Joss‘ response to my post about childhood memories  I thought today I would simply share some clips and songs that never fail to bring me to that place where magic and miracles happen on a daily basis. Feel free to add more in the comments (I’ll have to approve, as I have to approve links) because I would love to see this list grow. So, in no particular order, enjoy.

I’ve become hooked on TANGLED and this scene never fails to make my imagination soar.

I’ve always loved the muppets, because they make me believe in everything.

Jack Johnson. Enough said.


I also thought I would share some of the things I have in my office for inspiration, because they too reflect my belief in magic:

The artist for the Sawdust posters is Ron Rodecker, and you can find more of his work here.

Join me in a land of wonder, and add some magical things below.

    Ok. Thomas is OBSESSED with Tangled. The lantern scene is his favorite. Without fail, he sticks his face against the TV and just says “Whoooa. Wow. Whooaa”. I just think it’s wonderful to feel so easily awed 🙂

    I have my grandfather’s mail sorting box from his years as a rural mail carrier in Kansas. It is filled with many of my favorite things—a few of my great-grandmother’s books, my silver baby mug, a collection of buttons from my grandmother, a glass heart given to me long ago, etc., etc. I consider the box and its contents entirely magical.

      What a truly magical container and collection. The wooden boxes that hold my magical items are older printer boxes, where they would sort letters. I don’t know where I got them, but I love them because some of my magic lies in letters and words.

    Now that is such an uplifting post! It is so nice to see what inspires and keeps us sane!

      But did you notice that the things that keep me sane all have to do with fantasy, magic, and believing in things people would find me crazy for? 😉

    my 29 year old daughter and I went to see Tangled together. One of the things I love about her is that she knows how to be silly and filled with child-like wonder. Oh we need more wonder and magic in our days. Love the things you surround yourself with. thank you for sharing these bits of wonder with us.

      Tangled on the big screen was a truly magical experience. I love going to watch “children’s” movies even with no child in tow.

    Okay, I have, indeed, been living under a rock (or in Haiti, Vietnam, ?), as I have never heard of Tangled. Sad, isn’t it?
    Love the stuff you have in your office, Lisa!

      You were living in Haiti, so that is acceptable. Plus you don’t have children so I’m sure some of those movies slide under your radar. Tangled is the story of Rapunzel, but with a much better twist. I highly recommend it.

      As I was taking pictures in my office I kept thinking, I would love to have a piece of Kathy’s art hanging in my home somewhere. 😉

    My equivalent to the muppets clip is Kermit the Frog singing Rainbow Connection. These days I seem to rely on the written word for my magic, which you’re definitely helping to supply! I just love that you know what you need to surround yourself with – I need to give this some thought.
